Jeff has been great with my 7 year old son learning Djembe and Bongos. Jeff gives clear concise instructions and practices the skills with him to work on during the week.

I am a full time professional magician with over 30 years of experience and over 15 years working as a full time pro. I will walk you through each and every step making sure that you not only understand how to perform a specific sleight or magic trick but WHY you do the particular moves or scripting when you do. I have a BFA in Theater Arts and use my training to help you understand the performance element of magic. Even if you are only performing for one friend, a well performed trick is better than and poorly performed one.

My fellow thespians,

You will be mentored by an Emmy Nominated actor and award winning Playwright. I have studied with legends such as Stella Adler and Larry Moss. My lessons are built on the Meisner technique. I have the solid foundation as a working actor and writer for thirty years.

I'm a highly sought after speaker and have taught my seminars at universities around the country. One of my goals is to transition the college acting student to a working actor. My students have built careers as a result of my coaching and mentoring. My all encompassing approach will cover everything from how to give an amazing audition to fast tracking you to obtaining an agent.

Compare my credentials of all your prospective teachers. I'm confident that my approach to presentation, proper breathing, voice, making a lasting first impression, how to dress, building your career, how to get an agent is unique and helps me stand apart from my competition.

Lastly, I really care. I am ...

Acting is being! Easy to say, but trust me it's very hard to do. The way you are is the way you act. My class is dedicated to helping students understand who you are which is the basic skills required in order to develop the art of being through monologues or scenes from plays or movies. A lot of acting exercises will help develop your acting skills as well as help you find the motivation for every action you take, even breathing.
